As demand grows for metal in design, METALCON 2021 will be the place to be for architects to learn more about metal’s beauty, versatility, durability, and sustainability virtually lending itself to limitless applications. Discover the “magic of metal” in architectural design at this year’s show. This “show within a show” is exclusively for architects, designers, specifiers and engineers eager to breathe new life into projects and solve a wide variety of architectural, structural, environmental and performance challenges — all through the use of metal.
METALCON will take place at the Tampa Convention Center in beautiful Tampa, Florida, October 6-8. REGISTER TODAY!
The Architect’s Experience at METALCON brings you value-packed curated exposure to the latest architectural metal and metal construction trends, and business best practices specifically for architects. Given METALCON’s place as the only global event dedicated exclusively to the application of metal in design and construction, it is only fitting for the design community to attend and be a part of the metal building community. By attending the show, you will:
- Learn how metal components can add to a building’s sustainability and resiliency.
- Discover how a perforated metal wall panel can function as a transpired solar collector, lowering winter heating costs while improving natural air flow into a building.
- Explore the many types of metal, colors, textures, and finishes that are being used in building design today.
- Understand how metal components incorporated into a building can help to improve a building’s energy efficiency, for both new construction and retrofit projects.
- Speak with experts from the world’s leading manufacturers of metal components.
- Identify how metal panels can be customized in profile and in color to achieve a desired building design.
- Learn how metal can be incorporated with other building materials to add diversity in texture, color, and aesthetics to a design.
